The Ultimate SEND Day


Course Details

Understanding different types of special educational needs can be both challenging and time consuming. Getting the right teaching, learning and support is crucial. This course will demonstrate practical ways to provide both challenging and accessible learning opportunities for pupils with SEN. This will include pupils with autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysphasia, ADHD/ADD and emotional, social and behavioural needs.

We’ll explore a range of differentiation techniques and develop strategies for promoting learning specific to the needs of individual pupils. We’ll also look at the importance and effectiveness of assessment to promote maximum attainment for the whole class.

A toolkit of practical and highly effective SEN strategies for the classroom.
